Dreams.

I’m talking the real ones.

The ones you can feel and almost taste. The ones that sit in your soul, sometimes too fragile to even talk about. The ones that you are afraid may never happen if you are honest with yourself.

We are talking all about dreams this month.

We are currently experiencing the manifestation of a seven and a half year old dream in our family. It’s made me really sit and think about dreams in our lives and how we get from that first little idea of a dream to the reality of it.

1. Years ago I was told “You don’t have to know HOW you will get to realize a dream, you just need to believe you WILL.” I believe that wholeheartedly. When I think of a dream or put it on a dream board or make it a goal, I don’t always know how it will happen step by step. It can seem so big that your mind doesn’t even comprehend how it could happen. THAT IS OK. Just keep it in your vision. Hold tight to it and try to make yourself believe that it could happen, even if you can’t see how yet.

2. Understand it won’t always look exactly how you pictured. I always knew I wanted babies, but I never in a million years would have guessed that IVF or years of infertility would be involved in that. I always wanted to own my own Pilates business, but I never could have guessed that it would be in an online space. Be open to however things may unfold and believe they are getting you where you want to go.

3. Accept that dreams change and that’s ok! You may have had a dream for years that suddenly feels like it doesn’t quite fit you anymore. Or maybe it was someone else’s dream for you. Be ok letting go of a dream that doesn’t serve you anymore.

4. Take time to be grateful when it comes. Dreams don’t always manifest with clouds parting and angels singing. They take work and grit and indecision and growth and even some confusion along the way. I find when they do happen it can be easy to get lost in the work of it all versus the gratitude of them happening. Take a moment to let it all in and be thankful for where you are.

I’ll talk more about this in this month’s podcast so if you want a little more meet me there! Hold tight to your dreams. Nurture them. Believe in them. And believe in yourself to achieve them.
